Quiet Riot continues their historic journey in 2017 with their new album, Road Rage. Led by drummer Frankie Banali, who is joined by veteran bassist Chuck Wright (who has been in and out of the band since 1982), guitarist Alex Grossi (who has been in the band since 2004), and new vocalist James Durbin, the band continues to be an unstoppable force in the rock 'n roll world. Road Rage is set for release on August 4th.
Today the first song from Road Rage and the first ever Quiet Riot track featuring James Durbin on vocals has been made available for streaming. Listen to the track below.
“Quiet Riot has always recorded songs that have a link with the Quiet Riot "sound" and at the same time always musically moving forward. "Freak Flag" is such a song with a strong connection to our iconic sound from the past, which I think our longtime fans will appreciate and newer fans will embrace," says drummer Frankie Banali.
Vocalist James Durbin continues, "“Freak Flag” is a concept I've been holding on to for a few years. It's all about being you no matter what life has labeled you with. We're all broken and searching for acceptance, but there's a beauty in that search and it's something that should be celebrated."
Road Rage was originally scheduled for release in the spring of 2017, but with the injection of newfound energy for the band with the addition of American Idol alumni James Durbin in the vocalist slot, the band decided to scrap the original sessions and record a new version of the album with the new and improved lineup. The results are everything Quiet Riot fans could have hoped for.
Musically, Road Rage offers exactly what you would expect from Quiet Riot. Arena ready hard rock with strong hooks and infectious riffs, along with maturity in the songwriting that only a band with such a history and pedigree can offer.
